The Most Hipster of Mobile Homes Wheels Around Europe

New, 2 comments

Have a look at Wheel House, the avant garde home-in-the-round designed and built for a pair of globe trotting acrobats and their ultra hipster, steam punky circus performance. The Wheel House—a 25-minute show produced by Europe's Acrojou Circus Theatre—follows the adventures of a pair of idiosyncratic vagabonds living in their rolling house in a wheel, a hand-built abode complete with clattering tea kettles, open windows, pseudo 19th-century ephemera, and even a bed outfitted with belted straps so the the resident doesn't, you know, fall to the ground with every rotation. As the protagonists tumble over each other to urge the wheel ever-forward, the story gets told and the audience paces alongside the action. Detail shots of the house, below.
